Simple Mutton Curry With Cumin Coriander Rice And Yellow Cabbage


If not all, most mutton curries are made with spices, curry powder and chillies for the thick curry with succulent mutton (dalca mutton curry, masala mutton curry, pepper mutton curry, almond spicy mutton, mutton yoghurt and Indian mutton curry).To make a different type of mutton curry, it is about varying the spices. For a quick fix curry, I use ready made spice powder. Sometimes I do dry fry the raw spices and blend for an authentic curry. Again, it really depends. Of course cooking curry on weekdays is about rushing back from work and quickly making, whereas during weekends, spices are dry/pan fried and blended. By far, this is the most basic mutton curry, made with the ever available at home ingredients. But when paired with cumin coriander rice and yellow cabbage, indeed a lavish Sunday afternoon meal.  

For the mutton curry
400g mutton - cut into bite sizes
1 tbsp ginger paste
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 large red onion - sliced
2 tomatoes - sliced
3 potatoes - remove skin and cut into chunks
2 tbsp plain chili powder (or as per taste)- mix with some water for a thick paste
Spices - 1 stick cinnamon, 3 cloves and 2 star anise
3-4 sprigs curry leaves
2 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced 
5 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

For the cumin coriander rice
2 cups white rice
1 tbsp salted butter
1 large onion - sliced
3 sprigs coriander leaves - shredded
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3 cups water
Salt for taste

For the yellow cabbage
1/2 (about 400g cabbage) - sliced into long medium size pieces
1 small red onion - sliced thinly
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
3 dried chilies - cut into 3 pieces
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Method
For the mutton curry
Mix mutton with turmeric powder, ginger paste and garlic paste
Keep aside.
Into the heated oil, add onion and spices.
Fry for a minute, add mutton and the rest of the ingredients.
Stir and and pour in 1/2 liter of water.
Simmer and cook till mutton and potatoes becomes soft and gravy thickens.

Wash rice and drain out excess water.

When seeds starts to splatter, add rice.
Stir and fry for a couple of minutes.
Add rice with 3 cups of water into rice cooker.
Season with salt.
Once cooked, fluff up rice and stir in coriander leaves. 
For the cabbage
Into heated oil, fry onion, curry leaves, mustard seeds and dried chilies for a minute or two.
Add cabbage, turmeric powder and salt.
Stir and fry for a texture you prefer.

  2. That looks like a traditional mutton curry, I have never seen potatoes in mutton curry though! Amazing combo with the flavorsome rice and cabbage curry - I'm sure, the curry tastes good with appam too, kerala style.
    When you talk about mutton, I remember a small town called Sankarankovil in southern Tamil Nadu, where you get the best mutton biriyani & curry in the world. NV eaters passing by that area, would definitely stop by for some.
